I'm a terrible blogger...

Wow...I'm a bad bad blogger...  I just realized that I haven't blogged in...OH...a month maybe???  Things have been going well, slow, but well.  I started Grad School this month.  So, needless to say, when I'm done with work and school, I really don't think of much else other than sleep.  I'm thinking I may have taken on more than I can handle at this point, but I'm here, and I'm gettin' things done. 

Weight loss has been slooooooooooooooow, but it's goin' down, so I am happy about that.  This past Monday I went in for my 3rd fill.  I'de still pretty much been in Bandster Hell up until that point.  So anyway, I only had 2ccs in a 10cc band and could eat anything...anything!  So I told her I'd like a pretty good fill; she gave me 2ccs.  So I get my regular Gladiator Protein shake from Smoothie King, and its kinna weird goin' down.  Not painful, but not comfortable if yaknowwhatImean.  So I write that off as me being swollen.  Then the next day...same thing, liquids are fine, not softies...okay I'm still swollen, right?  The day after that, same thing...tried some softies, and still no go.  Then Thursday, still can't do softies so I called my doc because I've never felt restriction before and I just wanted to see if this was normal.  They had me come in, do a barium swallow (eew) and they said I was way too tight.  So they unfilled me .5cc.  She also said I could be tight because I'm OTR (must I explain?).  Do you get tight when Aunt Flo comes around? Because shit, now that I'm not OTR, I'm back to easy eating.  Should I have just stuck with that extra .5cc?  Am I just not eating right?  It doesn't seem normal that mushies are painful.  I mean I was takin' teensy beensy bites and waitin' at least a minute. 

So what does being in the GREEN ZONE feel like to you?
